Thank you for all your comments. I have American Family right now. They have been great with my wood heat inside. But they said absolutely no solid fuel in shop because its too easy to accidentally leave something out with flammable fumes and/or park a vehicle that has a gas leak. Don"t know what they think will happen if fumes reach a propane furnace LOL. I will check with USAA and will add the heat lamps for sure over the mill and lathe. May try the active solar also. thanks again.

I put a sun room on house, passive solar. Use windows that are not low E. Low-e windows block solar gain.

Know a man in Florida that has a machine shop. He covers his machines with heavy blankets. Wondering if the blankets soak up some moisture and helps prevent rust? Blanks then dry out when temps go up. Not sure how effective it really is. May try it.

Better be careful if the word gets out your are a teacher, some may come down on you. What science do you teach? George

I put terrycloth towels over the cast iron tables on my table saw and bandsaw. No problems with rust in an unheated shop.

I also rub them down with a new dry scotchbrite pad once a year or so and put a coat of Turtle Wax on them.
